Beyonce Baby Drama

Breastfeeding Moms PISSED

Plotting to Sue Hospital

1/9/2012 10:01 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0109_beyonce-hospital_EX_01Lactation and retaliation ... TMZ has learned a bunch of new moms are passionately discussing BOTH topics at the hospital where Beyonce just gave birth.

Sources at Lenox Hill Hospital in NYC tell TMZ ... the mothers have been gathering at a breastfeeding class at the hospital ... and in between latching techniques, they've been griping about the way they've been treated during the celebrity lockdown.

We're told the mothers feel they've been "neglected" by hospital staff ... and now they're discussing the possibility of filing a lawsuit against LHH.

According to, Bey and Jay-Z dropped $1.3 mil to seal off a private wing of the hospital ... with private security roaming all over the place.

Our sources say several mothers have been seen arguing with Bey's security people ... accusing the hired muscle of being "extremely rude."

Still, we're told the mothers are not mad at Bey and Jay -- directing the blame solely at the people who run the hospital.

One source tells us, "Someone at the hospital should be protecting us patients."

We've placed calls to the hospital -- so far, no response.

Like these two or not folks, no doctor in the US is going to perform a scheduled c-section at someone's home. It's surgery; it must be done in a sterile operating room with an anesthesiologist and quick access to a battery of medical equipment in case something goes wrong. It's a safe operation for sure but there is always a risk in surgery of any kind. No doctor would risk their license to perform it.

I'm an RN who has worked at Lenox Hill Hospital. They are very used to celebrities and rich people. I have never seen them close off a whole wing. Rich people hire a private nurse to stay with them. Elizabeth Taylor also hired a security guard to stay in front of her door.I find it hard to believe the hospital would do this for a one time hospital stay. I'm no fan of Jay z and Beyonce. But this does not make sense

What do you think happened? LHH showed them a menu that included the "all you can eat" seal off an entire wing for only $1.3M (not including armed guards). No, they told LHH what they wanted and the hospital added up what it would cost. They are ALL EQUALLY RESPONSIBLE.

Beyonce and Jay-Z are disgusting. I just hope the real mom and baby are ok. Beyonce, Jay-Z... you all should make a donation to the neo-natal care unit and to all of the moms that actualy have problems. You have kept them away from their children. You are no better than anyone else. Seriously... no better. eeewwwhhhh!!!! You guys are gross. Write a song about that....

So stupid, a rich person hires someone to have her baby and then all the other parents have to be mistreated because of these secrets and rich creeps who think they own the world.

I'm quite sure this "high end" hospital is equipped with ample "SURVEILLANCE" cameras. The "alleged" accusations of "rudeness" are probably nothing more than these men doing their jobs because the Carters don't want to interact with other patients or their families. They "PAID" for additional "PRIVACY" and this "PRIVATE" hospital agreed to PROVIDE IT. I doubt seriously if ANY "high end" healthcare facility is going to jeopardize their "accreditation and/or operating license" by giving these women and their babies an "INFERIOR" level of medical care. These women and their families probably expected much more "personal" attention from the staff to make up for the "inconvenience" of having their babies around the same time the Carters had their child. Of course, if you have ever spent "ANY" time in hospitals, the personal attention that patients receive is somewhat dependent upon how they and their friends and family interact with the staff. Screaming at and mistreating nursing and hospital personnel will guarantee they interact with a patient no more than what's required. I have to wonder if these other patients are making a "concerted" effort to "COOPERATE" with the hospital staff or are they being "UNCOOPERATIVE" because they "AREN'T" the "CENTER OF ATTENTION"??? This would probably explain the "MAJORITY" of their COMPLAINTS!!!

Bey and Jay should of hired a doctor to come deliver the baby at their house. If they can spend that kinda moola, why not. Those other mothers were cheated of the joy of child birth. Celebrities who demand all this special treatment are POS's in my book.

If they were so worried about privacy why didn't they just pay that money to have a doctor and staff stay at their home ?
